Numb
Snap Decision - Jami Davenport

This is book #3 in the Seattle Steelheads series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader understanding, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this series in order.

 

Tyler has just won his second Super Bowl.  Yet he feels nothing at all.  He is numb.  Something has to give.  When tragedy strikes, he finds himself doing the last thing he would have suspected.

 

Lavender had plans to be the owner of a cat.  She was to upgrade a historical home.  Then her friend dies, and it is all gone.  Even the cat.  Should she stick around and teach the new owner what it is like to appreciate the beauty that is where she lives?

 

This book was completely unexpected.  A whole new concept, and a very good pace.  The characters start out basically hating one another.  I found the emotions to feel real and the story to be different.  It was interesting for sure.  The characters are interesting and their reactions to one another entertaining.  I give this a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Snap Decision (Seattle Steelheads) by Jami Davenport
Snap Decision - Jami Davenport

Jami Davenport scores a touchdown with SNAP DECISION.  Seattle Steelhead's quarterback Tyler Harris is willed a run-down mansion on an island in the Pacific Northwest.  He keeps bumping heads with his new next-door neighbor, Lavender Mead, who is not a fan of football players.  This contemporary sports romance is suitable for adult audiences.

 

SNAP DECISION is a clever and fun read.  I enjoyed the banter between Tyler and Lavender.  They are very entertaining.  Tyler is a complicated character.  He is a talented football player who lost his passion for the game.  He’s questioning his worth.  He doesn’t let people see the real him.  Lavender is an enjoyable character.  It is understandable why she does not like/trust football players.  I like how their lives overlapped.

 

I enjoyed the plot.  I thought the history behind Twin Cedars was interesting.  I love Cougar the cat.  I liked the cuss jar, it added amusing moments.  All the details made the story perfect. I always enjoy Jami Davenport ‘s writing style.  It flows well and is entertaining throughout.  I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Snap Decision - Jami Davenport

 

 

Will the pain of her past keep her from having a happy future? Will one mistake deter the football star from risking his heart on forever? Snap Decision is a fresh start for two wounded souls. Tyler follows the rules on the field, but has his own maneuvers outside the arena. When a hint of scandal tarnishes his heart, he seeks some solitude to lick his wounds. What he gets is a smart mouth, firecracker with her own baggage to sort through. Lavendar has no time for the big ego and bright lights of Tyler's star. With her own emotions weighing her down, she can't possibly take on anyone else's. That is until Mr. Big Ego teaches her a few lessons in life, love and happy endings. Davenport scores high marks with her wise words and captivating characters.

Bad boy quarterback Tyler Harris plays ball for a living and breaks hearts for a hobby.

 

With two championships in as many years, Tyler is the best quarterback in the league. Gorgeous and rich, he's at the top of his game. Women love him. Men want to be him. Only Tyler's not feeling the love. In fact, he's not feeling anything at all. Licking his wounds after a scandal and a breakup with his long-time girlfriend, he retreats to a run-down mansion on a remote island in the Pacific Northwest. Once there, Tyler is blindsided by the sassy redhead next door. He knows that he's met his match and possibly his soulmate. There's one problem. She despises him.

 

Lavender Mead has a good reason to dislike jocks, namely an absentee father who deserted the family to coach college football. Maybe that explains her penchant for bad boys -- especially those who play ball. Her new neighbor seems just that type. Yet Tyler's not the shallow superstar she expected, and she's inexplicably drawn to football's bad boy. The two are so hot together, they're combustible.

 

As the clock ticks down, can they commit to each other forever? Or will they both fall short of the goal at the last minute?

Snap (Bauer)
Snap - Belinda Bauer

I do enjoy modern thrillers, so it's not completely unlikely that I would have read this without the Booker longlist nomination that caused me to push the "add to waitlist" button on my e-library account. And I've probably wasted too much mental energy since, wondering whether the odd halo cast by the Booker has subtly altered my expectations and in what direction.

 

I quite enjoyed this, but it had a few shortcomings that niggled at me during and after the reading. Chief amongst these was an unsupported motivation for the principal crime - a motivation referenced in the title, but really no motivation at all. I know people snap, but we got to know the villain so little that his snapping seemed not just out of character but out of the blue. The main character, Jack, was much more accessible, and in the main much more likeable, which helped somewhat to bridge over the rather distressing way he solved the problem of his mother's murderer towards the end of the book. However, I couldn't help feeling that the random vandalism and lashing out that was the nastier end of a generally nice young boy was planted more to make his violence at the end seem plausible than because it was consistent with his own back-story.

 

Marvel and Reynolds, the cops, are a nicely-balanced pair of caricatures with a good double act that provokes the occasional smile. I hope, if this is part of a series, that Rice, their female sidekick, gets a bit more to do than she did here: as a character, I felt she had promise.

 

I liked the deliberation of the initial chapters and the way the plot picked up in both pace and bizarre events towards the end. This is as it should be in a thriller. There was, however, no twist to speak of (the identity of the knife-maker was, I suppose, a bit of a reveal, though certainly one I saw coming). The only mildly unexpected thing at the end was that one of the cops suppressed some information that would have had grave consequences for young Jack.

 

Anyway, I'd recommend this for people who like thrillers anyway, but not for people who read prize literature nominees because of their literary qualities.
